Charlotte Bond Counsellor/Psychotherapist MBACP
Whatever is going on for you, I offer you a supportive, confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings. The key to the counselling relationship is openness, empathy and non judgement. There is no subject that cannot be discussed within the safety of the counselling session.
I'm known to most people as Charlie, and I have worked full-time as a counsellor since 2014. I am experienced in working with adults and young people, both one to one and facilitating therapeutic groups. Trained as a Humanistic, Person Centred Counsellor, I also draw upon other counselling theories and creative approaches as required. The main emphasis of my approach is on the trusting, non-judgemental relationship between client and therapist, enabling you to feel comfortable to share what's going on for you.
I am currently offering face to face, telephone and Zoom appointments, I am able to offer some evening appointments online. In order to benefit from the telephone or zoom sessions, you will need to be able to find a private space where you can talk in confidence for the duration of the appointment.
I offer face to face appointments in a consulting room in Barnstaple. (This is dependent on availability due to the reduced use of the space following Covid restrictions) so, please call me to discuss this further.
Please give me a call on 07595 532316 to arrange a time to discuss your situation. We can talk about what is going on for you and then you can decide on whether you would like to attend a session.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
